GIRL BOSS REVENGE (1973)
Follow up to GIRL BOSS GUERILLA featuring the same leading actress and gang leader, Miko Sugimoto. In this they swap the name of the gang from The Red Helmets to The Gypsies and it's not actually a sequel but just another similar tale of gal gangs going up against the mob. This one cuts down on the humor and instead ups the nasty violence and rape to a pretty high-level making you really hate the gangsters in this by the time it's payback time. As is the case with many rape/revenge-type films I'm always left with the feeling that the vengeance never equals the torture that the protagonists are put through. Maybe if I had a fetish for tying up and/or slapping around Japanese women this wouldn't bother me so much. You get plenty of catfights, some glowing-hot metal shoved into ladies orifices, double-crossing Yakuza and low-life street-trash ladies showing they have higher loyalty than classy-looking gangster fellows. A well-made fi9lm that you probably shouldn't watch with your mom.
